Audiobook Review: Primordial: David Wood/Alan Baxter


Sometimes, the legends are true.

When eccentric billionaire Ellis Holloway hires renegade marine biologist Sam Aston to investigate the legend of a monster in a remote Finnish lake, Aston envisions an easy paycheck and a chance to clear his gambling debts. But he gets much more. There is something terrible living beneath the dark waters of Lake Kaarme and it is hungry.

As the death toll mounts, Aston faces superstitious locals, a power-hungry police chief, and a benefactor’s descent into madness as he races to find the legendary beast of the lake.

Elsie’s Rating – ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Sam Aston, a marine biologist, desperately needs a big paycheck to clear his gambling debts. When a billionaire in search of a mysterious and deadly deep sea monster comes calling, Sam sees a way out of his problems. He couldn’t possibly be more wrong!

Primordial is horror, sci-fi and Indiana Jones all rolled up into one! It’s one exciting story from the first paragraph. Trust me when I say the human monsters in this story are every bit as frightening as the prehistoric one!

Jeffrey Kafer is one of my favorite narrators of the sci-fi/horror genre and he does an amazing job on this audiobook which clocks in at just over 8 hours. Authors David Wood and Alan Baxter penned a fantastic story and the ending leaves an opening for more adventures from Sam Aston!
